Whitbread brings new plant-based dishes to menus to increase customer choice

Whitbread has partnered with Nestlé Professional’s plant-based brand Garden Gourmet to launch new meat-free dishes on menus at 1,200 of its pub, restaurant and hotel sites.

The new partnership sees the Garden Gourmet brand highlighted on menus across the company’s hotel, restaurant and pub estate at 800 Premier Inn sites and 400 pub and restaurants including Beefeater, Brewers Fayre, Bar + Block, Table Table, Whitbread Inns and Cookhouse + Pub sites, which serve over five million customers a month.

New Autumn menus for Beefeater, Brewers Fayre and Bar & Block, Table Table and Cookhouse + Pub feature the Garden Gourmet Sensationa burger, which has been certified vegan by the European Vegetarian Union and is high in protein and fibre.

On Beefeater and Bar & Block menus the burger features in The Sloppy Joe burger, with the vegan patty topped with a cheezy vegan slice, burger sauce and a sloppy joe mix of green lentils, mixed peppers, soya and chipotle.

The Garden Gourmet Sensational Burger also features on festive menus for brands including Beefeater, Brewers Fayre and Cookhouse + Pub.

The new Garden Gourmet Cumberland Sausage, which like the Sensational Burger is 100% plant-based, containing non-GMO soy, is available on Whitbread’s new breakfast menus, including at the UK’s biggest hotel brand Premier Inn.

The tasty and nutritious new sausages are also available on its kids’ menus as well as a veggie option for Brewer’s Fayre popular Ultimate Filled Yorkie dish on its main menu.
